Effects of Snow Cover on Biological Soil Crust and Microbial Biomass Revealed[Jun 24, 2019]

Recently, a research group from Northwest Institute of Eco-Environment and Resources (NIEER) collected three types of BSCs in the Gurbantunggut Desert and exposed biological soil crusts (BSCs) samples to five snow depths for 3 years, to examine these effects of snow cover on soil properties and microbial biomass in BSCs.


Resonance-enhanced Tunneling Induces F+H2 Reaction in Interstellar Clouds[Jun 25, 2019]

Scientists from the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics and their collaborators investigated the mechanism of rapid reactivity of the F + H2 reaction at low temperature and found that rapid reactivity was actually induced by resonance-enhanced tunneling.

Novel Chinese Nanogenerator Takes Cue from Electric Eels[Jun 24, 2019]

Researchers from the Beijing Institute of Nanoenergy and Nanosystems and the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences have developed a bionic stretchable nanogenerator (BSNG) that takes inspiration from electric eels. The scientists hope the new technology will meet the tough demands of wearable equipment applications for stretchability, deformability, biocompatibility, waterproofness and more.

Researchers Improve Performance of Thermoelectric Material for Room-temperature Applications[Jun 19, 2019]

ZHANG Yongsheng's team at Hefei Institutes of Physical Science developed a new way to improve the room-temperature thermoelectric performance of AgBiSe2 by tuning its band structures using intrinsic and extrinsic point defects. This study was published in Physical Review B.

El Niño Heats the Earth's Atmosphere, But Cools the Ocean: Study[Jun 24, 2019]

Scientists from the Institute of Atmospheric Physics and their collaborators find that although El Nino heats the Earth's atmosphere, it cools the ocean. Their study provides a more complete view of earth’s energy flow associated with ENSO, and sheds light on the ENSO forecast and extremes through an energy point of view.
